I found out yesterday that I got a 526 on the MCAT (132/130/132/132), and Im currently carrying a 4.0 that I don't anticipate losing. I am majoring in biomedical sciences at UCF and have a minor in statistics and am in my Junior year. The issue is my ECs are lackluster at best. Based off of my current involvement, I will have ~400 hours clinical volunteering and ~400 hours research. I am working on finding shadowing and non-clinical but realistically I won't have too much of either. I was a TA for Biochem last semester but I didn't have the time to continue that this semester. Other than that I am actively involved in the honors congress, where I am participating in a mentorship program, and the chess club, but don't have a leadership for either, and I have been playing the piano since I was a kid.

Trying to work on a preliminary school list/looking for some advice on what to do next

A 4.0 is only impressive if you have managed to validate all the core competencies we look for.
"Losing" it in the interest of more important factors is a sign of strength.
